EAM is excited to announce the Manitoba Electrical Expo
EAM
The Electrical Association of Manitoba is excited and pleased to announce the completely new bi-annual industry trade show, Manitoba Electrical Expo.

The NEW Electrical Expo, formerly known as the Electrical Showcase, is now planned for May 20-21, 2015 in the Red River Exhibition Place pavilion, Winnipeg. This newly redesigned expo is now planned for every second year, rather than the former tri-annual event. The revised dates will keep the electrical industry more up to date with current trends and products, as well as offer more information sessions and demonstrations to keep the hands on technicians up to date with current codes and technical issues.

The show will feature a whole new face for the annual industry event with a focus on; New ideas, New Opportunities, New Resources and New Connections.

To help make all this happen, the EAM has even hired a new show manager to make sure this updated event is something special for the entire industry. Watch for more details on the Manitoba Electrical Expo on our site, www.EAManitoba.ca. The new event pages will be up soon.

Province considers flood plans
Winnipeg Free Press
The Selinger government is eyeing an ambitious upgrade of dikes along the Assiniboine River east of Portage la Prairie that would protect against a once-in-200-year flood. One of several flood-control measures to be discussed at a series of open houses shortly, the project would cost more than $250 million. "These are dikes that are in many cases 90 to 100 years old. They've served their purpose," Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton said recently in releasing a technical study prepared by consultant KGS Group.

With super-conductivity, is resistance futile?
Brantford Expositor
Electricity has become so commonplace in our lives, that it is hard to imagine life without it. Our cars would not function, nor would any of our electronic gadgetry from cellphones to iPods. Most of us would freeze because even gas furnaces require electricity. There would be no communications technology nor would there be any industries which have become so dependent upon the power grid.

Marcia makes geothermal pitch to Estevan
Estevan Mercury
While there are a number of factors that make geothermal power an attractive proposal in the Estevan area, perhaps the key that makes Estevan more feasible than other places is that it's not a big job creator. DEEP Earth's geothermal project has an economic case, but a project that doesn't add many jobs is rarely one that is trumpeted from on high by politicians.
